    WODEflow install guide.

    If you have previously set up the Homebrew Channel and DVDx for the old WODEMenu app, you do NOT need to repeat this process. Simply add the WODEFlow app to your SD card's apps folder as shown below in the "To begin" section.

    DOWNLOAD SOFTWARE HERE
    Downloads - wodebrew - Project Hosting on Google Code

    ALTHOUGH THIS PROCESS IS GENERALLY SAFE, THERE IS ALWAYS SOME RISK OF DAMAGE TO YOUR WII! IF YOU'RE NOT WILLING TO TAKE THE RISK, DO NOT FOLLOW THIS TUTORIAL. STICK WITH THE GAMECUBE MENU! FOR THOSE WILLING TO TAKE THE (relatively low) RISK, READ ON:

    The first thing you need to do is set up your SD Card to work. I'm not allowed to mirror some of the files required by this tutorial, so I will instead link to them. You need:


    To Begin
    1. The first step is to update your WODE to version 1.28 (or newer). If you don't know how to do that, stop reading this guide right now and learn how to before you continue.
    2. Now we have to set up your SD Card. I recommend that you use an EMPTY SD card, just in case. We'll start by extracting the archive that you download which contains the HackMii Installer. Inside the archive, you will find a file called "boot.elf." This is the only file that you'll need, so you can safely delete the others. Put this "boot.elf" on the ROOT of your SD Card. (The ROOT means that it isn't in any folder.)
    3. Download the WODEflow dol, create a folder called "WODEflow." On your SD card, create a folder in the ROOT named "apps" and in the "apps" folder, put the "WODEflow" folder.
    4. Extract the BannerBomb archive that you downloaded and move the "private" folder to the ROOT of your SD card.



    Please rename the downloaded "wodeflow - v0.1.dol" to "boot.dol".

    Your SD card's file structure should look like this:

    ROOT

    -boot.elf

    -private
    --wii
    ---title
    ----aktn
    -----content.bin

    -apps
    --WODEFlow
    ---boot.dol
    ---icon.png Not provided as yet - use the WODEmenu one for now
    ---meta.xml Not provided as yet - use the WODEmenu one for now


    Installing the homebrew code onto your Wii
    IF YOU HAVEN'T BEEN READING VERY CLOSELY, YOU SHOULD START TO DO SO NOW. THIS IS THE MOST DANGEROUS PART OF THE TUTORIAL, AND IT MUST BE READ STEP-BY-STEP!
    1. Insert the SD card that you set up above into your Wii (NOT WODE!).
    2. DEPENDING ON YOUR WII MENU VERSION, launch BannerBomb. ON WII MENU 4.2 go to the SD card menu. ON WII MENU 4.1 AND BELOW go to Wii settings, data management, channels, and click on the SD tab. When asked to load boot.dol/elf choose YES.


    3. You will now see a 'this software is free' notice. Wait a few moments for it to say "Press 1 to continue." Do that.
    4. This is the HackMii Installer. You'll see a list of things that can be installed. Just press continue.



    5. What you see now is the MAIN MENU. Choose "Install the homebrew channel"




    6. When the homebrew channel is done installing, choose "Install DVDx."
    7. Once DVDx is done installing, press the "Exit" button. You will be returned to the HomeBrew channel, where you can see the WODEFlow app. Click on it, then press the center button on the window that pops up - "Load" - to start the app.


    Cleaning Up
    You have successfully set up your Wii to use the WODE Homebrew app! Now it's time to clean up your SD card a bit.
    • Delete boot.elf off the root
    • Delete the "private" folder
    • KEEP THE APPS FOLDER!


    Right click Save as icon.png


    Copy contents to wordpad save as meta.xml
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?>
    <app version="1">
       <name>WODEflow</name>
       <coder>r-win</coder>
       <version>0.1</version>
       <release_date>201004210000</release_date>
       <short_description>WODE Cover Flow</short_description>
       <long_description>This is beta software, use at your own risk!
    WODEflow is a port of the popular Wiiflow originally created by Hibernatus and ported to work with the WODE hardware.   
    -This software is protected under GNU General Public License v3
    -Requires a working installation of DVDX.
    -Some GC games don't start (like Killer 7 and others)
    -The loader may freeze when downloading covers
    Thanks to:
    Hibernatus,Narolez, hulkhodn for Wiiflow and all the Themer's for their hard work and support, lustar and WiiTDB for the amazing covers,#wode IRC channel on EFNet for the endless testing and of course TheArtificer

    Enjoy WODEFlow! Just remember, when you want to use the app, the SD with the "apps" folder that you set up here must be in the Wii's SD slot.



    Please note that all credit to Aether for his original guide for WODEmenu which I have adapted and edited for WODEflow. All errors are mine alone. Thanks mate.

    I'll be following this guide when my Wode arrives. Thank you for taking the time to write it out. One question, the guide says to use an SD card to set this all up. Once HBC, Dxdx, and Wodeflow are all there, can I take all the files off the SD card and put them on the WiiHDD? I'd like to make it so that I don't always need an SD card in the Wii if possible.

    Short answer. No. The SD card has to be present.

    Edit:

    Sort of said that but not clear enough.

    wodeflow question??

    I'll start with what Ive got...
    black wii runnung 4.2e
    d2e drive
    wode installed and working
    seagate 500gb hdd formatted to ntfs
    homebrew channel installed
    wodeflow in apps folder on sd card................hope thats enough!


    When I want to change games being played from hdd,I press home to get back to HBC and wodeflow doesn't appear on screen.
    It works fine the first time I go to HBC but after that,I need to restart my wii for wodeflow to come up.....

    is there a fix for this?

    also I have seen video somewhere showing "wodeflow channel"-is that available?

    What version of HBC are you using, if its 0.7 or 0.8 you will need the no ios reload edit in the app.

    To install channels you have to have Homebrew.

    These two guides show you how to install wads for channels.

    This one has two channels I have created. http://www.wiihacks.com/wode-guides/...-channels.html

    Wodeflow will be in the Homebrew channel - you have to open that each time.
